LONDON, April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Collinson Group has joined forces with leading security and crisis management specialist Security Exchange, in a strategic partnership to deliver a comprehensive travel risk management offering to the corporate market.
This enhances Collinson Group's current capability in the Corporate Travel arena - with a fully integrated corporate travel risk solution - to help corporate clients deliver their Duty of Care responsibilities to their travelling employees and expatriates. The alliance gives clients access to specialist end-to-end expertise for both medical and security risks, comprising risk consultancy, 24/7 medical and security assistance and emergency response, including evacuation and repatriation.
David Evans Managing Director, Insurance & Assistance at Collinson Group, said: "The widening geographical spread of today's mobile workforce makes it essential that those responsible for the safety and security of their travelling staff have access to the best possible specialist support. Our research shows that most frequent business travellers and expatriates have underlying concerns about their security when working overseas; and relying on a purely insurance-based solution will not entirely mitigate many of the risks involved when working in less secure environments. Our alliance with Security Exchange will offer our clients a fully integrated corporate travel solution across both medical and security risks to give peace of mind to employers and employees when operating overseas."
Rupert Reid, Managing Director of Security Exchange, commented: "Our 25 years' operational experience in the security risk management arena, integrated into Collinson Group's global assistance network, means that our clients will benefit from a truly comprehensive and effective business travel service. With 24/7 access to both security and medical support through a single point of contact, and fronted by multi-skilled, multi-lingual customer service team, our clients will enjoy unprecedented levels of assistance when travelling."
